luiy's insight:

Our system allows users to examine the factors influencing the predictions, so users can determine how “Liking” a certain item changes the predictions regarding their intel ligence, or how changing the number of friends they have affects the predictions regarding their personality. Clearly, these factors are under the control of the user, and users may modify their behavior on Facebook to be perceived in a positive manner. As people can form judgments on others based on their social media profiles [4], this phenomenon is not new. However, we believe an automated tool can allow people to easily determine how others may perceive thembased on their behavior on social networks.

Data-Driven Journalism Will Save #Democracy and Your #Identity, Too | #ddj #privacy

Data journalism and the age of data democracy.
luiy's insight:

As it currently stands, big data is one seriously wild, wild west. It's implications are far reaching, but its implementations are quite slow. And even once the use of big data is implemented for an individual, across a company, for a country, throughout the globe — will we even know the true value of the information provided? Will we be able to tell when big data turns into useful data? Can we look at the industry and see the emergence of a data democracy — and then use it as such?

renvoie en effet à un ensemble de pratiques hétérogènes : la participation aux débats publics, l’exposition de soi dans des récits intimes, le développement de pratiques amateurs, les bricolages (remix, sample, collage) de produits culturels standardisés, la recherche de signes de distinction, l’affirmation de choix de vie autonome, la quête de réputation, etc.
luiy's insight:

Le processus de subjectivation : l’extériorisation de soi

La première dynamique est celle de l’extériorisation de l’identité des personnes dans des signes, formulation qui recoupe, au moins partiellement, ce qui est souvent qualifié de processus de subjectivation[8]  La notion de subjectivation fait l’objet d’acceptions... [8] . Les interfaces du web 2.0 présentent toutes une entrée individuelle, une fiche de signalement, qui constitue le point de départ de toute navigation. Celle-ci enregistre certaines caractéristiques stables et durables des personnes, mais aussi et surtout des signes d’identité beaucoup plus diffus, mouvants et multiples que les participants déposent dans leurs goûts, leurs amis, leurs activités ou leurs œuvres. Ce que l’on qualifie habituellement de dynamique « expressiviste »[9]  ALLARD et VANDENBERGHE, 2003. [9] renvoie en effet à un ensemble de pratiques hétérogènes : la participation aux débats publics, l’exposition de soi dans des récits intimes, le développement de pratiques amateurs, les bricolages (remix, sample, collage) de produits culturels standardisés, la recherche de signes de distinction, l’affirmation de choix de vie autonome, la quête de réputation, etc.

Over at The New York Times, Jenna Wortham wonders whether Facebook’s acquisition of Whatsapp points to a resurgence of small social…
luiy's insight:

Facebook’s key problem for many people has been what academics sometimes call “context-collapse,” which is the sense that Facebook sometimes feels like an extended Thanksgiving dinner where everyone you have ever known is at the table. This is an identity-constraining environment as it’s hard to know how to address such a large crowd at the same time. People have been grappling with this for a long time and have come up with a variety of solutions, including fleeing to Twitter & Instagram and, yes, Whatsapp.

 

Social scientists have long been trying to communicate this to technology companies: it is normal, natural and healthy to have different communication needs at different levels of one’s social network. One wonders if, early on, Mark Zuckerberg had listened to social scientists rather than declaring “having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity”, would he now have $16 billion more in his pocket?
